John Cornelius is one of the most creative magicians in the world and the first American to win a F.I.S.M. World Championship of Magic competition (First Place in Close-Up, 1979). In 1985 he decided to enter the card division and once again won first place. For that competition, he designed a very special act titled “Every Card Trick In The World In Under Ten minutes.”
The video begins with John performing his award-winning act at the Magic Castle and then going to a studio where he teaches the multiphase act that is full of startling and visual card magic. You will learn the entire act in great detail as he teaches you how to construct the props, setup the act and perform all the effects and techniques. The video ends with an interview with John where he discusses how he ended up entering and winning his first FISM award.
You will probably not perform the entire act as taught but all the individual routines and revelations explained within the act are very visual and useable and can fit into any act.
Routines and techniques taught include:
Shrinkage (shrinking card case), Arisen! (impromptu rising card), Shrinking Cards, The Master Cut, The Apprentice Cut, Benzais Bewilderment Move, Boomerang Card, The Oh Calcutta Shuffle, Flash Production Display, The Winter Change, Riffle Force, Dribble Control and much more.
